    Desktop display magnified
    Help !!

    My 27" screen was set at 2560 x 1440.

    The display has increased by about 25% so now I need to move the mouse pointer around the screen to view.

    I have looked at the display mode and it still set at 2560 x 1440.

    I have re booted the system but it still shows the enlarged screen.

    Any ideas please to resort it back to its default size?

    Do you by chance have the ZOOM feature turned on? Go to System Preferences, Universal Access, and look to see if it's turned on.

    Regards.
